Keep your letters succinct and respectful. Let the city leaders know that people from all over are condemning what is going on at MAS. Remind them there is a viable alternative: make Memphis a no kill community. Include a link to this primer on no kill.
Please use your voice to speak for all the pets at MAS – living and dead. Share this info with the many caring pet owners you know so that they can write letters too.
If you are in the Memphis area, please attend the monthly Memphis Animal Services Advisory Board meetings:
All meetings are held on Wednesday evenings at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library located at 3030 Poplar Avenue, 38111 in meeting room A from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM.
The next meeting is scheduled for tomorrow – Wednesday, April 13.
Memphis area residents can show up with a plan to speak at the meeting or just sit and listen. You can make a protest sign to support the pets at the shelter if you wish. The idea is to let the city know that the people of Memphis do care about their community’s pets, despite what shelter officials and the Mayor say.
- Demand better care for pets at the shelter – including vaccination upon intake across the board and standard, humane cleaning practices to prevent disease transmission.
- A change in shelter leadership – leaders whose interest in saving all healthy/treatable pets will determine shelter policies and procedures
- Share this no kill primer with everyone connected to the shelter. You can e-mail the link or print out hard copies.
